Best price I've ever seen on a 1000 watt gold PSU, especially as of late with the miner craze driving up prices. Most 1000 watt PSUs with a Gold rating are selling for much more. (gold efficiency rating being key to that statement (this one is rated at 91.8% efficient) -- and not counting the chinese junk out there that is uncertified or less than 80% efficient)

I already bought one of these 1000 watt Raidmax Vampire PSUs a few months back, and have been using it to crypto currency mine. I was drawing 1050 watts from the wall on this unit for a few days with no issues. I bought two more today at that price.

6 PCI-E 8 pin connectors. – so two of these PSU's gets you 2000 watts with 12 PCI-E 8 pin connectors for $140 with this sale. (only one rebate per household – so $60+$80)

Here is a PSU splitter you need if you want to combine PSUs for crytpo currency mining.

Hmm ... seems like it has high failure rate from reading newegg. Also seem to fry your equipment in the process. Caution is advised.

Um... it's just draining the other components of their energy... it's a vampire...

Use common sense.

Almost every power supply reviews seem to have some negative reviews.

DOA/fried components people are gonna be angry & write a review. Be helpful to know how many have been sold.

I don't ever see myself writing a PSU review unless it doesn't work.

Tempted on this one.

I have a corsair that I still need to send back.

Doesn't Raidmax also have a terrible reputation for rebate payouts?

name brand Gold efficiency 1000 watt PSU's are $150 normal price, and maybe $120 on sale.

This is half the price.

I've already been running mine at 1050 watt power draw at the wall (as measured by a power meter) for a couple days on a crypto rig before I bought a second PSU and better distributed the load.

The nikki review linked in this thread also overloaded it and it took it. If you need a 1000 watt power supply on the cheap - this seems to be the real deal.

Yes, had to email them after 6 months for 2 rebates. Then took 2 more to actually receive them. I only had to email them once though. Some other people have had worse.

this unit is made by HEC and uses low grade components that other companies stay away from, slapped together by a half assed soldering job, and it's designed by people who failed out of Chinese engineering schools. i got bad news, this unit will not actually perform at "gold" efficiency and there is also a good chance that this unit's electrical noise is outside of ATX's already loose specs, just like many of HEC's other abominations.

if you are too broke to buy a good gold PSU, buy a good bronze PSU and save yourself the headache.

Your conjure is based on what reference for this particular PSU?
